The health ministry officials briefed the participants of the meeting about the current situation of Covid-19 in the country. However, the NCOC has decided to refer the matter of re-opening the educational institutes to the Inter-Provincial Education Ministers Conference (IPEMC).
All educational institutions across the country were closed earlier this month till May 23 to contain the spread of Covid-19.
According to sources, the IPMEC will hold its meeting before May 23 and in the first phase, schools would be open for students of classes 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th.
